How long can we continue to have such luck with the premise that arming teachers is the answer to school shootings?

Riders pay registration fees to participate, and unfortunately, the roads are rarely closed. If Mr. K has any familiarity with endurance events (i.e. running or biking), he should know that athletes don’t stop during the course of those events and law enforcement officers monitor key inter...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
